On its third and final departure for America in
' the year 1620, the good ship Mayflower carried the
Pilgrims through the vast and unchartered turbulent
waters of the Atlantic on their hazardous voyage to
Plymouth Colony. Armed with slightly more than
FAITH in themselves and God, they had left their
homes and loved ones with a FAITH strong enough to
sustain them through those first severe and trying
winters in the new land -- an unwavering FAITH
which was to build homes, churches and schools, clear
the land, till the soil, unite the people in a mutual inter-
dependence, fashion the first colonies, and give birth
to a new nation with a foundation firmly enrooted in
History tells us that years later the same FAITH
made possible the revolt against arrogant rulers, hav-
ing its culmination in the Boston Tea Party which
fanned the flames of insurrection and kindled the
spark of revolution by a Declaration of Independence,
reconfirming their FAITH in the equality, liberties,
and inherent rights of all men.
Thus begun, with only unswerving I"AITH as a
ruling guide, America's boundless wilderness was ex-
plored, her deep rivers bridged, her fertile prairies
and proud mountains spanned by rail and road, and a
civilization reached still undreamed of by many
nations of the world. ,
These things which today we take for granted
were hard-earned by men of vision. courage. and
FAITH. In recent years the world has been beset by
two wars, and the upheaval and disturbed conditions
that surround and follow such wide-spread catastro-
phies provide the medium for distrustful thinking and
a resultant lack of FAITH in other nations and other
individuals. ' '
Yet, a moment's reflection on the past will show
the greatness of America was built by the FAITH of
individuals in God, FAITH in themselves, and FAITH
in those honest men around them.
This "FAITH" of which we speak made strong
communities, strong sies, and a strong nation --
strong enough to survive the trials of time. But there
is no standing still in the "America of Progress." and
she will continue to progress through the vision,
courage, and FAITH of her sons and daughters. May
you be one of those who has and keeps that FAITH.
